There is a Giant Vegetable Competition coming to local Tottington Hall and everyone in town, including Wallace and Gromit, are growing their crops for the contest. The duo are also making some money with their humane pest control service 'Anti-Pesto' by stopping the local rabbits from eating the veg.

Wallace finds himself trying to attract the affections of Lady Campanula 'Totty' Tottington, the woman who is hosting the contest. However, there is a rival for her affections in the form of the vile Lord Victor Quartermaine and his hunting dog Phillip, who would rather sort out the rabbit problem by shooting the bunnies.

Wallace soon comes across a problem with his business. He is running out of space for his captured rabbits. He is also having trouble with his weight, so creates an invention to solve the problem: The Mind Manipulation-O-Matic. With this machine, he intends to take away the rabbits love of veg and give it to himself, while at the same time making the rabbits harmless. Instead, the machine malfunctions resulting in one of the rabbits, Hutch, behaving like Wallace.

After the incident, a mysterious creature begins to terrorise the locals, consuming every vegetable it can lay its paws on. The local vicar, the Reverend Hedges, tells the town it is the fault a monster called the Were-Rabbit. Gromit suspects that the monster is Hutch, but soon he and Victor find out who the real Were-Rabbit is and they must solve the problem before Victor puts a golden bullet into the beast's head.
